Learn secrets to cooking from Central Oregon chefs!  These classes are hosted by HDFFA and led by regional chefs who will tantalize your taste buds through cooking demos featuring locally sourced ingredients. Each 2-hour class will feature at least one local farm.

Pay it Forward

The best part, these classes are BUY ONE GIVE ONE.  This means that for every ticket sold, HDFFA enrolls a family in our free Cooking Matters program held throughout Central Oregon each spring and fall. This model allows us to pay it forward.
